We've taken you behind the scenes of hat-making and shared an overview of our launch, today we take a closer look at the hats from 'Postcards from Paris' Natalie Chan's latest couture millinery collection. Inspired by Parisian ladies of yesteryear, leisurely lunching at chic cafes in their best dress, these ladies are forever immortalised by photography on vintage themed postcards.
In her newest designs, we see Natalie create with her continued fascination of old world meets modern day. Hats are oversized with large wide brims in typical millinery materials sinamay and capelin, with the introduction of the standout piece ‘d’Orsay’ constructed entirely in a cane lattice and juxtaposed with a soft silk organza bow. This theme of juxtaposition, of hard versus soft was carried through as seen in severe shapes paired with delicate adornments, sculpted forms and teardrop shapes played base to detailing such as veiling, scrolls, and petite blossoms.
